ExpoDynamicsTM and the World's Fair Decision Model
Expodynamnics, Expocheck, and the World's Fair Decision Model Project

Expodynamics, the ability of the world expo community to predict attendance and other exposition dynamics prior to opening day. Are they dependable?  Are they accurate?  This has been the question within the exposition community since the first event in 1851, when Londoners wildly predicted troubles from a public engaging the world in the first Crystal Palace.  They didn't know how many people would come then, or why, and that is still true in good measure today.  The World's Fair (Expo) Decision Model Study was undertaken by JDP Econ to study the attendance dynamics and impact over the history of the world expo movement.  It represented an attempt to interpolate the factors that have led to the success or failure of events within that one hundred and fifty year span.

Check out the study parameters in better detail at World's Fair Decision Model, including the study participants involved. 

JDP ECON is now developing its EXPOcheck series of reports, providing an unbiased, independent review of approved events in the coming years, beginning with Zaragoza and Expo 2008 and Shanghai's Expo 2010.  These independent attendance dynamics reports based on the World's Fair Decision Model are great additions to the information provided by official sources and may be useful to public planners, exhibitors, concessionaires, media, and others interested in the upcoming events.

JDP ECON is providing these on an independent basis, and these reports, as well as EXPOdynamics reports, are not available as work-for-hire documents.

EXPOcheck reports now available for Expo 2008 - Zaragoza (Post) & Expo 2010 - Shangha (Post)i.  They are available in pdf format with immediate download through e-junkie.com.
